ObamaCare Damage: 60 New Hospitals Cancelled, Others Prevented From Expanding

Share

Here’s the latest in my effort to expose the damage that is being caused by ObamaCare.  I missed this when it was originally published at CNS News, but here it is now

More than 60 doctor-owned hospitals across the country that were in the development stage will be canceled, said Molly Sandvig, executive director of Physician Hospitals of America (PHA).

“That’s a lot of access to communities that will be denied,” Sandvig told CNSNews.com. “The existing hospitals are greatly affected. They can’t grow. They can’t add beds. They can’t add rooms. Basically, it stifles their ability to change and meet market needs. This is really an unfortunate thing as well, because we are talking about some of the best hospitals in the country.”

The organization says physician-owned hospitals have higher patient satisfaction, greater control over medical decisions for patients and doctor, better quality care and lower costs. Further, physician-owned hospitals have an average 4-1 patient-to-nurse ratio, compared to the national average of 8-1 for general hospitals.

Further, these 260 doctor-owned hospitals in 38 states provide 55,000 jobs, $2.4 billion in payroll and pay $509 million in federal taxes, according to the PHA.

So, these hospitals reportedly do a better job, and they’re being cut off, and not permitted to expand.  But, we’re going to give millions of people insurance, and they’re going to go WHERE for treatment?  Or is that the intent?  Is this simply another crisis to create, and then exploit?

There is debate as to the effectiveness and cost-efficiency of these hospitals, but many of these claims come from competitors, so you can judge their claims by reading the linked article.

    Well, isn’t this nice! Yeah, you’ll have mediocre heath insurance… you just won’t be able to find a hospital. Or doctors, probably, since a lot of people who would have become MDs now won’t.

      I think that what you wrote is part of the intended effect.

    Not to toot my own horn, but I did write about this issue here. :)
    I had the same questions as you have. We are supposed to be providing millions of more people with access to healthcare, yet we are prohibiting more hospitals to open up. And work on some of those hospitals had already begun. It seems to me that this is all part of the plan that will eventually lead to a single payer system and healthcare rationing. This administration knows exactly what they are doing.

      I did see your post. It’s very good. I’ll add a linky to mine.

      They do know what they are doing. They are causing a crisis in order to move towards single payer. Anyone with a brain can see this.

    Two words, Mob Doctors.
    We will end up with a black market of Doctors, where you will go for treatment when the government makes you wait for needed care, I wouldn’t be surprised if the mob ends up running that kind of racket when there are thousands who need care and can’t travel to some more remote location, i.e. ?foreign country, for treatment, especially if the government forbids it.

    Of course you can expect the government will warn people against this, but most will ignore this when they see the long waiting lines like at the DMV or the Department of Labor when it comes to simple treatments.

    I can even see what they will charge people with when the get caught trying to get this kind of treatment, the act of getting an illegal medical treatment, the attempt of getting an unapproved medical treatment, and the act of unlawful medical practice.

      That’s an idea that I had not thought of. Organized crime will exploit shortages and prohibitions. That’s nothing new. I can also see some unscrupulous folks offering all sorts of shady products and services as well.

    I heard that there are now 33 states opposing Obamacare.

      I really hope that these AGs and Governors attack the law from slightly different “directions.” My fear is that one liberal, or just a few, activist judges will kill all of it in one shot.

    Ah but you see obama and his socialist ilk won’t care, they’ll just say it’s free, never mind you can’t get any treatment.

      And, the MSM will carry water for the POTUS.

      Thanks for the comments!
